Dylan Kelley is a senior music and chemistry double major from Harrisonburg, VA. His exposure to music training began at an early age, with junior choir, but Dylan really began studying music when he first picked up his clarinet in middle school. After several brief stints with District Band, Dylan played as the principle clarinetist at Woodberry Forest School, where he also began playing guitar with several student bands.
At Davidson, Dylan studies Clarinet with Wendy Harrison and plays with several ensembles. These range from the Davidson College Symphony Orchestra to the Davidson ‘Nets, Davidson’s clarinet quartet. He also enjoys randomly picking up his guitar or clarinet and playing loudly while his roommates try to sleep.
Outside of music, Dylan is involved in many campus activities, including the Chicken Soup Troupe (a group of entertainers for the local children’s hospital), Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity, and Club Soccer. He also has a love hate relationship with his Chemistry, which is mostly love for the chemistry and hate for the homework. In addition to holing up in the nearest library or practice room, Dylan also enjoys hippy dancing and air guitar in his free time.
After college, Dylan plans on applying to medical school, where he hopes that his eclectic college coursework will either be of vital importance or at least no use at all.
